Child Poverty

Immigrant Children Poorer Than Swedes

Children in Sweden with parents or grandparents from other countries are still much poorer than their Swedish classmates living in more well-regarded areas, according to a new report from the Swedish Save the Children fund.

After looking at public figures, the study claims that over 60 percent of children living in areas of Malmö with a high number of immigrant residents can be classified as living under the poverty line. But what does that mean in a rich country like Sweden?
